I have had this phone for about 3 years. I work in the industrial field( chemical plants, oil refineries, power plants, etc.) This phone has taken abuse that most other phones won't last a week in. I have worked with others who go and buy phones with amour cases and very good insurance, because they have to replace them regularly. This phone has never let me down.
The phone is complete garbage. Don't waste even a penny on it. The PC software coding is something from windows 95 and will not work with 7 or later operating systems at all. The software tech I spoke to recommended I install an earlier OS rather than tell me a work around for installing their defunct usb drivers on the pc. Even once I did get the unsigned drivers installed, it failed to initialize despite trying different com ports. Total waste of your money. Don't be fooled.
I like it! my job provides theses phones to us so I didn't have to pay shit it hasn't let me down and if it does then at least I don't have to pay for it ahaa I drop it on purpose to see what happens and it's still going strong
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2014I like the phone and all but what makes me mad is that i cant figure out how to turn off a ton... moreTotal junk!
I had mine a month and dropped it while standing halfway up a six foot ladder. The phone hit the pavement and when my helper picked it up the screen was shattered. It appears to have hit a pebble.
Besides that the functionality is pretty archaic the only feature I found to be unusual was the voice recorder although it only records the receiving end of a conversation which renders it basically useless.
The sad thing is how tough it's supposed to be. Pathetic!
I went and got an I phone and have never looked back.
I'm sure sonim won't be around much longer.
To summarize: this phone is highly over-rated and not worth the money.
Had the Armor one week---was out of town until today. Phone center add on the phone advertises e-mail and now I find out that it is not intended for email or internet use. C-Spire manager lied to me. C-Spire tech said it would but they couldn't fix the issue until I was back in the C-Spire strong signal area. Making them trade.
i think it will make a good phone for someone who works outside or in the weather p.s. nice phone
This phone is the worst phone on the market and this company's customer service is non existent,all you get is a recording telling you to leave a message and they never call back.If you get this phone from Ntelos DON'T expect them to do anything about it,they just tell you to keep CALLING so basically your stuck with a two year contract and a phone that will break down unless you pay $50.00 and that's if you have insurance.....the 3 year warranty is basically non-existent..'I will never deal with NTELOS OR SONIM ARMOUR AGAIN AND I'VE BEEN WITH NTELOS FOR YEARS NOW.....THEY LOST MY RESPECT!!!!
Where can I buy this phone in Singapore? Please tell me the shop for this?
phonon, 10 Jun 2013Very few people are aware of Sonim, this is the ruggedest phone ever made, people who know w... moreIn three years sent the phone back 6 times. This includes the replacement/upgrade when I was told they couldn't fix/replace my quest pro so they sent 3300. Its been back 4 times and now they will not make good since my warranty is up even though the new phone has not worked within sonims specs since I received it. Horrible customer service. Retailer no longer deals in sonim for this reason. $500 dollar phone that operates worse than my $10 flip phone with $1 customer service. Stay away!
Does anyone know is that phone will work in Europe? the thing is that it says that it is a CDMA 800/1900 Mhz phone, but I am not sure if it work on GSM network.
I purchased the phone with hindsight that is has navigation and GPS. After spending hours searching I cannot find anything on the phone.
I was told you could download with this phone to the computer. OOPS LIE. The drivers are not digitally signed and do not work on the computer. This is CRAP and false advertisement. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!!

So I have had the phone for just under a week and have been putting it through the paces. It has very few software features, but at least it has an .mp3 player. Except the "Battery Full" chime and indicator go off every 5 minutes. Their drivers for Windows 7 64bit operating system are not digitally signed and Windows rejects them and consequently their contact sync and modem tool program crashes when I try to run it. They don't have much of a customer support presence beside directing you to your local yocal service provider that don't know squat about the phone, and a generic comment box where you can leave your email address and hope for a response. If they would at least support their stupid phone with some drivers that work and offer a flash upgrade for their buggy phone, but I don't have much faith that Sonim will be around to make good on the 3 year warranty, so I'm getting out now and going with LG, Motorola, or Nokia.
